However, it is important to note that in some sectors the figures do not show the real financial indicators for financing cultural activities. For example, in the yearly budget of the Performing Arts sector there are funds for capital investments, like the finishing of a theatre building in Skopje (615 000 000 MKD), the building of the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra (59 000 000 MKD), the Albanian theatre in Skopje (80 000 000 MKD) etc. In the Museums sector there are also funds for capital investments (484 243 000 MKD) and maintenance of buildings and equipment (1 992 000 MKD).
